Safe to say that Bernard has to get a wildcard now for one of the 250s??
TA will never ever grant him one. It would be glorious if he qualified for one of those events too.

Tomic showed what he's capable of playing during bits and pieces in this match.
Now he needs to figure out those Unforced Errors and try to maintain a certain level and fighting spirit in order to get a W in Melbourne Park with a good draw.

If he keeps his current attitude he might get back into the Top 150 in a couple of months. The opposite wouldn't surprise me though.

You have to remember that he traveled all the way to Qatar, so it's clear that he was motivated not to lose right away. Especially with the upcoming Quarantine scenario reentering Australia.
In addition, he was fortunately able to focus on tennis, since his normal hotspots such as clubs and bars are closed for corona reasons :D

Actually where he is from, Queensland, nothing much was closed since they had hardly any cases or deaths.

Well done, Bernie. He's an exciting player for a reason.

Is it just me but I can spot that hottie from his Twitter picture pumped some new-born motivation into him?

Can you imagine spending 24/7 with a pornstar? Tennis would be a very welcome change of scenery

Yep I am aware of that. I was actually referring to Doha. Even if it was open he wouldn't have been able to go due to quarantine reasons ;)

This is some random outside court in qatar, you dont actually think they have live hawkeye right? Lol

there are a lot of linespeople there
I only saw linespeople for the center service line, but maybe I wasn’t paying close enough attention.

Let’s fucking go! Clutchass Tomic in 2 straight final set tiebreaks and into the main draw we go. A shame Brown didn’t make it but at least one of the 2 did.

I have to admit I was holding my breath in that last set super tie-breaker. I thought for sure Tomic would somehow find a way to lose that match. Don't see him getting far in the MD, we'll see when the draw comes out.

I agree I was so sad to see Brown lose in the final round of qualifying. He really needed the computer points. Maybe he might get in as a lucky loser, one can hope.

Not much sympathy because its tennis serving first/second system that creates those moments to begin with (if it was out, which it probably was by a couple centimeters).

Its just unfair for one player to have to serve second throughout the entire final set. It should be back and forth.

Tomic btw had to serve second ALL three sets.
wait... you propose they go back and forth in terms of who serves first within a set? How the hell would that work lol

If everyone holds their serve, whoever served first in set 1 will serve second in set 2. If you break to win the set you’ll serve first in the next.
what’s the issue exactly?
